1.  can you beleive that WILLIAM SHATNER turns 80 today?  yep..EIGHTY…can’t quite get that in my head….SHATNER, of course, was CAPTAIN KIRK on “STAR TREK”.  and is still on tv including a show called “SHATNER’S RAW NERVE”, which is a great great interview show….here’s the birthday boy back in his young and good looking days…

and here’s WILLIAM SHATNER today on his 80th birthday.

why do the old guys get the good looking girls?  ha ha

2.  in our “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ” section for today, we check in on the late MARGARET HAMILTON who played the WITCH   on “THE WIZARD OF OZ.”  very few characters have freaked out millions of people, but the witch did….

the story goes that she almost died from the green paint used in the role….


do you remember the coffee commercial that MARGARET HAMILTON did in her later years?  check it out…


MARGARET HAMILTON lived a long long time.  she died in 1985 at the age of 82…here’s a later photo of her.

3.  spent last night watching my TENNESSEE VOLUNTEER ladies win another game…..with my men’s team out, i now have to focus on the girls.  and actually, the TENNESSEE VOLS ladies are the reason i started liking this team anyway….other than their AWESOME ORANGE UNIFORMS….

4.  don’t forget that pianist JIM WITTER is going to be in ABERDEEN this sunday night performing the songs of BILLY JOEL AND ELTON JOHN….it’s going to be an amazing show…..plus he does some tv theme songs and lots of fun stuff….get your tickets at the ABERDEEN AREA ARTS COUNCIL office in the former CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING….i’ll have more on this in the coming days.

5.  FARGO is looking at 15-20 inches of snow today…KEEP IT UP THERE…ha ha…..and the problem with this time of year, is that the snow is that icky wet, heavy crap…..we’re looking at more rain here, but could be switching over to snow.

6.  PRESIDENT OBAMA said that the UNITED STATE’S latest “engagement” will last days and not weeks….of course, we don’t know whether he’s talking about LIBYA or MARCH MADNESS….

7.  a CALIFORNIA man was arrested after using his REAR END to smuggle in a cell phone, MP3 player, marijuana, cash, and tobacco….his friends say the man is a real PAIN IN THE….oh never mind…

8.  rumors are swirling that CBS executives are ready to forgive CHARLIE SHEEN if he comes back to “TWO AND A HALF MEN.”  they will even cave into his demands by having a bowl of crack on the food service table…

9.  during an interview on MTV, rocker SAMMY HAGAR of “VAN HALEN” said that he truly beleives that he was once abducted by aliens…but then they let him go when they realized he wasn’t DAVID LEE ROTH….

10.  a 400 pound sumo wrestler finally complete the L.A. MARATHON after what he called NINE HOURS, 48 MINUTES and 52 SECONDS OF PURE HELL…and that was just the first two blocks…


A little old lady was sitting on a park bench in The Sun Lakes, an   Arizona Adult community. A man walked over and sits down on the other end of the bench. After a few moments, the woman asks, ‘Are you a stranger here?’

He replies, ‘I lived here years ago.’

‘So, where were you all these years?’

‘In prison,’ he says.

‘Why did they put you in prison?’

He looked at her, and very quietly said, ‘I killed my wife.’

‘Oh!’ said the woman. ‘So you’re single…?!’
